What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Side Project Sessions: Peer-pressured productivity for your labour of love
February 15, 10:30am - 2:00pm EST. Hosted at Based In
About this FieldTrip
Side Project Sessions is a regular event series designed to help people put their labour of love – and themselves – first.
Sometimes the work is creative but scary; sometimes it’s necessary but a little bit boring. Whatever the block, our “peer-pressured productivity” format helps you create focus for the important work that can easily fall to the bottom of the to-do list.
Whether it’s writing a novel or a resignation letter, starting an illustration series or sending one email, Side Project Sessions welcomes any project, task or idea – big or small!
Join host Tomas Janka from Based In for a three-hour work session where you’ll learn to celebrate the process as much as the outcome, the break as much as the flow, and the solitude as much as the connection.
